[edit] Report

I've followed along for a bit, but due to resources and commitments have previously been unable to make it to any hashes, though I do live near a four-corners point. Today I discovered that the meetup point was only a few towns over and decided to get over there ASAP. Unfortunately, at this point it was already 4:10pm so the chances of an actual meet-up were minimal.

Traffic wasn't bad and the hash point was on Freeman's Lane just south of County Route 502/Franklin Lakes Rd. I have no GPS equipment, but I did drive over the road in both directions, so I did achieve the hash.

I went to park on the side street just southwest of the hash, but there was a car directly behind me that belonged to a person whose house I was parking directly in front of, and I generally fail my not-creepy check, so I made a U-turn and parked back on Freeman's Lane. I took a picture of the street signs at the intersection nearest the hash as well as the turn-off from the main road. I had brought some games and a deck of cards on the off-chance anyone else was there (besides the residents), but to no avail.
